Electron irradiation machines, which are more reliable than traditional gamma irradiation devices, only produce radiation while the device is operational and direct it to the targeted area. In emergency situations, power outages can completely eliminate radiation hazards. Additionally, the irradiation time is shorter compared to gamma irradiation devices. In gamma irradiation devices, the product needs to move around the source to receive irradiation from multiple angles, whereas in electron beam irradiation, passing through the irradiation area once is sufficient for the product.

  • It is more reliable compared to traditional irradiation devices.

  • The irradiation time is short.

  • The entire product can be irradiated with a single exposure.

  • Wide energy range between 400keV-10MeV.

  • Radiation is delivered only to the targeted area.

MeV-level electron accelerators find applications across a wide range of industries. Accelerators with energies between 5-10 MeV are used in medical accelerators (radiation therapy), medical device sterilization, and food irradiation. Accelerators with energies ranging from 400keV to 5MeV can be used to increase the strength of cables and vehicle tires (cross-linking), clean factory chimneys (flue gas treatment), and treat wastewater.

Polymers, primarily used in cable and vehicle tire production, among many other fields, can have their strength increased through electron beam irradiation. This process combines the bond structures of polymers, resulting in the production of high-strength value-added polymers.

For coal-powered factories, it processes nitrogen and sulfur oxides in the smoke, achieving a significant reduction in air pollution by improving them by up to 90%. The required expenditure is only about 1% of the factory's electricity consumption. In a pilot factory in Poland, it was observed that 95% of sulfur dioxide and 90% of nitrogen dioxide in flue gases were eliminated using electron beam treatment. These gases are known to cause acid rain and smog.
